ONE LEGISLATIVE RACE DRAMA RESOLVED...
Also from Bill Rufty's column this morning:
State Representative John Stargel (R - Lakeland) has decided not to move, saying he will stay in District 64 and run for reelection next year. There had been speculation that he would move his family across town into neighbouring District 63, whose seat is being vacated by Rep. Dennis Ross (R - Lakeland) who is running for Chief Financial Officer.
Instead, Stargel is endorsing his close friend and Lakeland City Commissioner Seth McKeel in his bid for the District 63 post.
If Stargel had decided to move into Ross' district and run, he would not be subject to term limits and could serve another eight years there.
